Whole Grains For The Whole Family
(NAPSA) - It's estimated that nine out of 10 Americans do not have enough whole grain in their diet. New USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend consuming three or more ounce-equivalents of whole grain per day. Eating whole grains may lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers and help with weight loss.
Fortunately, there are easy-to-prepare whole-grain foods available. For example, using Minute Brown Rice in place of white rice can be a simple way to add whole grains to your family's menu. Try this delicious low-fat recipe that can be prepared in 30 minutes.
